GHAC Outdoor Leadership Workshop

GHAC Outdoor Leadership Workshop

While outdoors are fun, you are also with nature, that can be unpredictable and one needs to be prepared all the times. A lot of preparation needs to go to go out in wild to take full advantage of the bounty of nature, unlike in Bollywood movies like Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani where you just show up without any preparation.

All GHAC trek leaders are trained in both theory and practical aspects of outdoors so that all treks are safe, nature friendly and no negative impact is left on mother nature.

  • Using a compass

  • Making a fire using minimum resources and without damaging nature
  • How to choose a campsite
  • How to pitch tent
